NARS Loves New York Set

Anyone reading this blog knows that I have been on a huge NARS kick for well over a year now, this counter is the first place that I stop each time that I go to Sephora store.  I am already beginning to look forward to the fall collection from this company even though the summer months aren't even technically with us yet.  I have a few more Lipsticks from this company that I want to collect and am hearing a rumor about a new formula of lip crayon that is on the way from this company.  But I must say that I am the more excited about a new palette that just come out from this company and this will be the perfect birthday present to myself in the upcoming days!

The newest NARS palette is named NARS Loves New York and I love both NARS and New York so this palette appeals to me even without me seeing what colors and products are offered inside it.  I have always wanted to visit the NARS Flagship store on Bleecker St and I am hoping that I will be able to get down into that area and at least see the outside of the store.  A visit inside the beautiful store might really be painful to my Visa card but very fun for me.  I can only imagine the day when I live within a short cab ride from this store and can visit it all the time.  Until then, I will have to order the NARS Loves New York Set and envision my future apartment.

The NARS Loves New York Set contains a palette with eye and face shades included in it and then a lip gloss and nail polish to complement the look.  I am not sure which items I am the most excited about, I want to try the bronzer formula for the summer months.  I also want more eye shadow shades from this line.  But I love NARS lip products more than almost any other line and I haven't tried the nail polish formula from them yet.  I think that the bronzer formula is my priority but I will love everything in this entire palette.

"Day to night, uptown to downtown— the style and sophistication of New York City in a dynamic and dramatic color palette as rich with possibilities as the city itself."

I don't even have to think about this palette, I know that I will want to order it and the only decision will be where I will order it from.  I might wait a few days and see if it is on the Sephora website since I am almost at the 400 point mark for VIBs and I want to qualify for the 500 Point Perk soon.  I still can't pick my early favorite product yet from this set.  I have heard so many great reviews of this bronzer formula, I already love eye shadows from this company and use Galapagos all throughout the year.  I have wanted the Dolce Vita Lip Gloss shade for a few months now and I really like the red shade of Nail Lacquer in this set.  This might be my favorite NARS set ever released and I love New York just as much as NARS does!
